my wrist is too sloppy while hitting my forehand
 
I am pretty sure my techinique is wrong because even though i lay my wrist back before hitting the forehand i always rotate it at the point of contact and during long rallies or while returning powerful shots my wrist flinches and i cant hit my forehand. My forehand is an extremely wristy shot what would you people recommend i do to keep wrist still

When you hit a forehand, two movements are allowed:
-you go from an ulnar to a radial deviation;
-you pronate through contact and follow-through.

What must be constant is the wrist extension. If you flex your wrist, you get a sloppy contact; if you keep it extended, you get a solid contact.
